A weak response for Hong Kong

1) Interfering with the middle people’s life…

In exchange of idea there are almost always a middle group who are ignorant or just want to live the way they had been. What would be the meaning of living then? Living is a learning experience, why would you learn? So you would improve and be a better person. If you similar want to live the way you had been, what will you be looking at when you die?…

Hong Kong: violence flares again as protesters reoccupy streets

Riot police clashed violently with pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong on Saturday as demonstrators reoccupied a camp mostly cleared the previous day, leading to multiple arrests and jeopardising talks aimed at ending a political stalemate.

Police used batons and pepper spray against protesters shielding themselves with umbrellas on a normally busy main road in the bustling Mongkok district, but were forced into a partial retreat as the sun began to rise, to cheers from the crowd.

Activists rushed to rebuild makeshift barricades in an area police had opened to traffic 24 hours earlier, while thousands of others staged a sit-in at the protest camp that has existed for nearly three weeks, according to an AFP reporter at the scene.

Hong Kong police said in a statement they had made 26 arrests in scuffles with a crowd that had swelled to 9,000 people in the early hours, with 15 officers sustaining injuries in the ruckus.

This is exactly why I’m beginning to lose faith.
This protester just put his hands up, and then the police have to pull down his goggles and then spray pepper spray in his eyes. He is defenceless, has no weapon, and then he gets hit anyways.
Fuck these so-called “police”. For police supporting the movement and/or quitting their jobs, I’m on a neutral stance with you guys. But the “police” who harm the citizens that they have sworn to protect is just atrocious.

mr lai said last night he was at mongkok but not at the frontline. he went home and came to the very front prepared this morning (@ 0800). he said there needs someone to stand in the front, he is ready to be injured; and what he wants is only a fair election system.

(08:00) 現與警方只有鐵馬之隔的黎生,任職工程,帶著頭盔、手套上有膠墊,正站與最前線與警方對峙。
他昨晚衝突時站於較後位置,但現在卻選擇身先士卒,雖然這兩天已有不少前線示威者被打至頭破血流,卻他未有感到恐懼,「肯企得上黎都冇得驚,我都預左企上前線,始終都要有人係前面」,至於他的訴求,他只希望爭取一個公平的選舉制度。
